I may have surprised a few people with my talk of playing nicely with NZLS in view of my outspoken comments in the past.
The time since we jumped off the one society train has confirmed in my mind that there is a really good reason to have two different bodies. However, to make this work we need two large and strong organisations with a mandate of large numbers. I think there are many things that need saying publicly in support of the profession that it would be unwise for NZLS, as regulator to say out loud. ADLS is the perfect body to raise these issues and start the dialogue and NZLS should encourage this.
We need to work out an understanding between the 2 organisations which will make sense of where we are at and set a clear pathway forward.
